Dear Miss Chandler, We shall expect you by the 12 train on Saturday. If you do not come [underline] then [/underline] by one of the afternoon trains. 11 A.M, 2:35 and 4 P.M. are the hours from the Fitchburg Station for Concord. Come by the earliest if you can and with freedom to spend some days of next week. May [page break] particularly desires me to say the she'hopes you will not hurry away.â and my own claims, are they less than indefinite? We expect Louisa will have returned from Gloucester and be with us by that time. And Mr. Davis will, of course, draw you from us to shorten your stay with [underline] us [/underline]. We regretted much to have lost [underline] your day [/underline] at Framingham. But her babies'illness left her no choice, and the heat looked formidable to me. You may have [page break] had a delightful reunion. Come and make it better than it was in the telling. I hope to have the last sheets of my [underline]'Daysâ [/underline] to show you when you come,- Your contributions to the text [to?] surprise you. When one puts his correspondents into her book what shall be the penalty? Affectionately A. Bronson Alcott
